About IABC’s Awards
Every year, IABC sponsors three levels of communication awards programs for members and nonmembers: Bronze Quill awards, Silver Quill awards, and Gold Quill awards. Communicators can choose to enter their best professional work produced during the prior year in these Quill communications contests. The specific divisions and categories for each contest can vary, but typical categories include marketing communications, member/employee communications, media relations, crisis communications, social responsibility, writing, graphic design, publication design, social media, interactive/web design, and photography.
